Boston University School of Management

Introduction

Boston University School of Management develops new ideas and insights for scholars and practitioners through its faculty’s research; and by fusing the art, science, and technology of business in our teaching, we impart knowledge of business disciplines with a unique cross-functional perspective to prepare ethical, innovative leaders for the good of society worldwide. Our students acquire advanced teaming skills, appreciate the impact of management systems, and understand the strategic and operating applications of new technologies.

About the school

To make your mark in today’s networked enterprise, you need to be able to anticipate change, harness it, and make it work for your organization.

That kind of vision can only come from your ability to see the enterprise as a whole system. And from analytical skills that reveal interconnections and intersections—not just as they are today, but how they could evolve tomorrow. It’s a vision that emerges in leaders who have learned to build teams that work.

At Boston University School of Management, interdependency and long-term impact pervade teaching and learning at all levels: undergraduate, graduate, and executive. Graduates of every program stand out as builders and leaders. They rise rapidly in their careers. And they develop the staying power needed in an era when technological advancement drives innovation and competitive advantage—in every department of every organization, in all sectors.

The School has changed the face of management education by building on our deep and broad strength in information technology. We use that strength and experience to drive and support our curriculum. We create interdependence between what we teach and how we teach it. The result: a pioneering approach to management development.

The Boston advantage

Boston, during the academic year, hosts more than 100,000 students and all the businesses and entertainment that cater to them.

But what else is here? Possibly more researchers and PhDs per capita than anywhere else on Earth. That means a concentration of intellectual, business, and scientific organizations that seek and reward a constant inflow of fresh young minds with new energy and new ideas.

Sure, some of the folks here talk a little funny. But we take education seriously. Not to mention our cultural assets (architecture, art, museums, libraries, symphony), historical landmarks, restaurants and clubs, shopping, and our college and pro sports teams. The School itself is just two blocks away from the Fenway Park where the Red Sox play.

Boston is a fascinating, walkable city with an excellent public transit system. Yet nearby you will find ocean and lake beaches, mountains, and wilderness. Home to major financial institutions, the world’s premier hospitals, high tech, bioscience, and more, Boston's universities and local firms enrich each other.
